I expected a light, fluffy comedy like The People I’ve Slept With, but this movie turned out to have quite a bit of drama and character development.
The (mostly) parallel storylines revolve around the trials and tribulations of a network of gay friends in London, along with their fag hag friend. Alex is growing up and taking charge of his life away from his ex, William has to juggle raising a daughter and trying to have a love life, Lars is probably cheating on Tom, Louise is worried her new boyfriend will end up being gay (like all the other ones, apparently). All interesting stories with characters that play with, but ultimately transcend, gay stereotypes.
The only slightly annoying aspect is Louise’s storyline and her bad luck finding non-gay boyfriends, which seemed tacked on, and incidentally the only one that was played purely for laughs. The opening scene seemed to imply she would be the central character, but we ended up seeing comparatively very little of her, and her presence didn’t add anything to the other storylines. That’s not a big complaint, mind you: I enjoyed the movie very much, and it’s only in hindsight that I’m asking, why was Louise even there?
